In January 2012 I travelled to Thuringia for further education and visited the Bach Museum in Eisenach. I do not find myself visiting museums very often but this one is worth it. The exhibition is very interesting and also the architecture is a good combination of half-timbered and modern elements. The highlight was a demonstration of the old instruments.
